Rogers to start vs. Marlins

The Brewers will employ a six-man starting rotation for at least one turn this month, meaning right-handed prospect Mark Rogers will make his first Major League start before the end of the season. 
Manager Ken Macha made that announcement on Sunday after meeting with pitching coach Rick Peterson to set plans for the season’s final three weeks. Rogers was penciled in to start one of the Brewers’ four games against the Marlins at Miller Park from Sept. 23-26, and could make a second start during the Brewers’ subsequent series against the Mets or their season-ending series against the Reds, depending on whether the Cincinnati match-up has postseason implications. 
The specific dates will be announced later, Macha said. 
“There will definitely be one [start],” Macha said. “There may be some shuffling going on.” 
Rogers was the team’s first-round Draft pick in 2004 and made his Major League debut on Friday in relief. He will continue to be available out of the bullpen until a few days prior to his start against the Marlins.
